NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton Roads Transit is testing its automated passenger counting system this month.
Between now and the end of the month, HRT says train operators will ask any passengers who are still on board at the end of the line — and want to go back in the other direction — to to get off the train and then get back on.
HRT says will allow the system to properly count the number passengers for the next trip.
